James, brother ?

  1. James, brother ?

    Brothers and sisters

    Can someone please help me with James being the brother or half-brother of Jesus?
    Mary having a second child?

    With biblical proof (I know there's a verse in Matthew, I forgot where) and some explanation please.

    It's been confusing me for a long time :'( :(:( :confused:ahh:confused:

    your brother Ramsey
  2. Here it is:

  3. I never knew Mark had more than 16 chapters :p:p:p

    thanks brother! now I just need more explanation :(
  4. Mary and Joseph would, and obviously did, have children. And, in reality, they would have been Jesus's half-brothers and half-sisters.
  5. that's too simple :p yet it's true and makes sense LOL.

    It was just hard for me to admit that in my head but suddenly it's not hard lol thanks :)
  6. The scripture declares that Joe didn't know Mary in the biblical sense until Jesus was born, It was a quite natural thing for a sweet little Jewish girl to have many children and they believed that to be a blessing from God. He would be Jesus half brother though- the same mom but a different Father as Jesus came from , was and always will be God.

    Mat 1:24 And Joseph, being roused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took his wife,
    Mat 1:25 and did not know her until she bore her son, the First-born. And he called His name JESUS.
  7. Of course that was the timing. Jesus was born first. Thanks.
  8. Thanks a lot my brethren!

  9. As I am sure you have worked out HMS intended to type chapter 3 not chapter 30.

    Also look at Galatians 1:19 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord's brother
  10. What does HMS mean :S ?

    By the way I know you made a mistake but I didn't even think it could be 3 LOL, I was at work and in a rush so I couldn't focus on which you meant :p

    Thanks for these verses :)

    I feel better now about all of this :)

    Thanks also Larry for that short information concerning Jewish girls, it has also helped me accept this.
  11. Yes, I did. Thanks for catching that. I've edited the post.
  12. Thanks a lot for this info really. I'm actually using it on someone who believes that Mary was always a virgin (kind of like me :p but different). Ehem. :p
    God bless!
